Nothing complicated here. If you've ever sniffed a pomander ball - an orange studded with cloves and then left to dry - you've got this fragrance pretty well figured out, though the cinnamon is slightly less piquant than clove might be. This is a clean, clear scent that requires quite a lot of application if you expect it to radiate beyond your immediate personal space. And luckily, unlike many fragrances that prominently include cinnamon, this has none of the rash-inducing qualities that often result from that particular note (at least on me, and my skin tends to be fairly sensitive to such things.) There is something masculine about this, too; I really feel it would smell better on a man. It has a slightly bracing about it.
